"This is a family favorite often requested for birthdays. The frosting recipe makes enough to cover the whole cake."

"This was sooooooo yummy and easy to make! The chocolate frosting on top is especially delicious. I don't feel that the amount of whipping cream and confectioners' sugar made enough for the filling. Next time I would increase that--perhaps even double it. Overall, this was outstanding!!"
